Date: Tuesday 11 September 2018
Time: 5:00pm – 6:00pm
Location: Michael Chamberlain Lecture Theatre, Building E – Aikenhead Wing, St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne. 41 Victoria Parade, Fitzroy, VIC 3065
This ‘Hot Topic’ will address the issue of challenging families in palliative care – exploring the socio-cultural changes for modern families grappling with a dying loved one, how this translates to the healthcare environment and what we can do in the face of it.
Areas of discussion include:
• Understanding their world – what families bring into the ward environment
• Socio-cultural perspectives – do modern families have increasing demands/expectations?
• Standing in the face of it – how we can approach complex families and how to not take it too personally
